How to Replace 2006 – 2009 Saab 9-5 Xenon Headlight Bulbs – Part 1

Are the Xenon headlights on your 2006 – 2009 Saab 9-5 flickering, dim, turning pink, or burnt out? I show you how to replace these bulbs yourself by removing your front bumper cover and headlamp assemblies to do the job the right way.

This is Part 1 of 2, and includes Removing the Bumper Cover, Removing the Headlight Assembly, and Replacing the Xenon Bulb.

Part 2 shows you how to Headlight Installation, Testing, Bumper Cover Installation, and Before & After.

Here are the bulbs I purchased to have a factory stock look:
– Osram D1S Bulbs (The SAAB 9-5 requires D1S)

Tools you need:
– 8 mm socket
– 10 mm socket
– T25 Torx Socket
– T30 Torx Socket
– Trim tool or hard plastic wedge
– Punch or Phillips-Head Screwdriver
– Flat-Head Screwdriver
– Wrenches
– Extension

This video applies only to the 2006 – 2009 Saab 9-5 with Vision Package or Xenon Headlamps. This is not the process for 1999-2005, or 2006+ with Halogens.

To be honest, you don’t need take the bumper off, passenger side u just move the air intake rubber hose, driver side just move the battery cover, that’s it. I did before…

Great video I really enjoyed it, very detailed. Where were you 8 months ago

Espen Karlsholmen says:

Why dismantle all this, when you easily can access the bulb just by opening the rubber cover? Maybe remove the battery and the air hose on the right side.
